How do I delete a new blog and rename an old one?

  1. I have a WordPress blog called A Different Kind of Woman. I created an additional blog called A Walk in the Blog, but what I really wanted to do was rename A Different Kind of Woman to A Walk in the Blog. I can't rename the address because it says A Walk in the Blog already exists. But I can't figure out how to delete the new A Walk in the Blog without deleting the entire blogsite, which I don't want to do! Help!

    The blog I need help with is adifferentkindofwoman.wordpress.com.

  2. This blog exists http://adifferentkindofwoman.wordpress.com/
    As does http://awalkintheblog.wordpress.com/

    You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered any blog to access it.

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

    If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
    If required click the "Need More Help" link and complete the form for account recovery.

    All blogs are independent and deleting one has no effect on the others registered under the same username.

    Provided you are logged in under the Admin username account that registered the blog in question you can delete any blog registered under that username by using these instructions. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

    After you do that if you cannot locate a verification email, look in your email client spam/junk mail filter for the email with the blog deletion verification link in it and click that link. If clicking it does not work then copy and paste the link into your upper browser bar and click.

    Deleted blog URLs are not recycled http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ You may want to make the blog private instead. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/
